Paddington 2 – A Magnificent Movie Review

Paddington 2 has been long awaited, following the heart grabbing first movie ‘Paddington’. But, was it really worth the wait…?

Paddington 2 was based around Paddington bear living his new life in London. But, not everything is pawfect for the cute bear.  The plot has brought memories to many viewers, from both of the ‘Rio’ films.

Paddington has forgotten his Aunt Lucy’s 70th Birthday present, and when he finds the perfect gift in an old antique shop, he realises that there may not be a perfect birthday present, as a London Pop-up Book costs a lot of money. But, somebody else has found this, and they’ll happily spend a lot of money to take it from its place.

In Paddington 2, most of our favourite family characters return to take us on the journey of adventure, alongside Paddington. But, can Paddington make friends with some gruelling prison inmates? Can he save them from hunger?

89% of Google users who took part in a survey enjoyed this just like me. There is a 5/5 from critical Empire. Paddington 2 has really grabbed our hearts. But, what do we think..?

Overall, I would give Paddington 2 a 9.5/10 star rating. This is due to the ending, which I think could have been improved by extending it, or keeping us hanging on the edge of our comfy cinema seats until we receive another sequel – or another book.

I would recommend this film to anyone who is wanting to have a good old gut chuckle.  It will keep you laughing, crying and singing all the way.
